Hello. I am trying to get PyOpenCL to work on my Xilinx FPGA board. I followed all the steps from nachiket and I got to the part where the environment variables are set, as per his paper. My python program fails to detect the emulation configuration file created for my board and resorts to the default one. I know the configuration works because I wrote a sample program in C and that detects my emconfig.json file. Could you please guide me as to what the issue could be, and if it is related to PyOpenCL? I can't find enough documentation on Xilinx about this issue and the .c program is able to detect the emconfig.json file, so I am stuck. Does pyopencl convert the python code into a C-based version for calling the kernels in a different directory? Any help you could give me would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
